2020 Senior Tax Freeze


The State of New Jersey began mailing applications for the 2020 Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) to senior citizens and disabled residents who may be eligible for the program. The deadline for filing applications is November 1, 2021. 

The Senior Freeze program reimburses qualified applicants for property tax increases on their homes. Applicants must meet all income eligibility and residency requirements and must file an application each year to receive the reimbursement. Applicants’ income cannot exceed $91,505 for 2019, and $92,969 for 2020. Applicants who are married, or in a civil union and living in the same household, must report combined income of both spouses/civil union partners. 

There are two versions of the Senior Freeze application: • Form PTR-1 is for first-time applicants (or those who filed an application last year but did not meet all the eligibility requirements); • Form PTR-2 is a personalized application we sent to those who received a 2019 reimbursement check.
